An exciting opportunity to be part of LI-DOG events for 2021!

*** New members encouraged to attend ***

After more than a year without any major events, LI-DOG is planning some amazing dog-friendly events this year! Join us at Borelli’s Restaurant in E. Meadow on Wed., July 14th at 7pm to be part of the fun. Be the first to know all that’s being planned and help make our events better than ever for people and their pups, including:

  •  LI-DOG’s Barkin’ Brunch at The Refuge
  •  Our HOWL-O-Ween Pawty at Off Key Tiki
  •  Our LI-DOG Pack Walks
  • And more!

What are some ways you can help make our dog-friendly events extra fun for both humans and pups? Help plan games, activities, and brainstorm fundraising ideas. We want to hear your ideas, thoughts and input.
LI-DOG volunteers are the core of the success of our events. Opportunities include judging contests, running an activity, selling raffle tickets, and handing out flyers, just to name a few. Let us know what you would like to do – there are many ways to help.

Whether you want to be part of the planning or learn how you can enjoy a fun day with lots of dogs while helping LI-DOG, this meeting is the place to start.

As the restaurant is kind enough to set aside a big table for our meeting, please come prepared to have something to eat. Borelli’s has GREAT pizzas, pastas, and salads.

Please let us know if you can join us Wed. evening, July 14th at Borrelli’s. Please RSVP on our Meetup Group:

We look forward to seeing you and hearing your ideas!
